Just saw it today.
-I thought Part 1 was better.
-Liked the escape from Gringott's with the dragon - well, actually, mostly I just like the design of the dragon. It had cool eyes.
-Poor Ron got shamefully underused in this film, again. Even Hermione didn't get much of a role. All she and Ron seemed to do was stand in the background and say "Brilliant" at each other.
-I did love Helena playing Emma. She got the walk down pat. Unfortunately, seeing the adults parody the kids so brilliantly (the "Harry walk" in Part One, inside the Ministry?) just kinda reinforces the disparity between the talents of the adults and the trio. I thought the kids' acting improved a lot in Part One, but was back to being ropy again here. Were they filmed simultaneously? Harry in particular annoyed me.
-For some reason, the font used as subtitles for Parseltongue and the "19 years later" title card bugged me. It was very... unmagical. :p
-Harry's mother looked way too old in this. I guess that was inevitable...
-It jarred me a bit to have the battle at Hogwarts start so soon. I guess it makes sense, because this is part two, so most of thew plot has already happened... but I was expecting it to happen later, for some reason. Oh well; not the movie's fault.
-I thought there were way too many cheesy moments. It seemed like everyone wanted a chance to stand dramatically in front of Harry and look staunch, or give some slightly out-of-character brash line for comic effect that just fell a bit flat and made me cringe. (McGonagall, I'm looking at you. Great hair, though.)
-Once again, Ginny woefully underused. People say she can't act, but I think it's a writing/direction issue - she's a feisty character, but she doesn't have any lines, and you can't really stand there looking feisty without lines or you just look kind of manic, so she just had to stand around a lot looking blank. Ridiculous waste of a good character. I liked her age makeup, though. Hermione looked haggard, Harry bizarre, and Ron realistic but kind of slovenly... but she looked fairly believable. I always thought she had a mature, motherly kind of face.
-Albus Severus was cute. Must have been such a treat for the kids who got cast as Harry's, Hermione's and Ron's children! Very little acting required, and a permanent place in the canon. Lucky ducks! :)
-I was surprisingly moved when Lavender died. Wish they'd given a bit more time to the Weasley twins, though - not just the death scene, but a bit more leadup than their one line before the battle.
-Not too fussed on Neville's speech to Voldy, although I'm glad he got his day in the sun. Really, has anyone ever in real life pointed to his heart and referred to someone dead as being "here"? Ever? I'm fairly sure it's just something Hollywood writers think people say...
-Ooh, Shell Cottage was pretty. I really liked the design there.
-The Ron/Hermione kiss was disappointing. And what was with Neville being in love with Luna?
